The Fay Farm Serenity CBD Lotion review
A couple of months ago, my friend Julie over at Counting My Spoons introduced me to The Fay Farm’s Healing CBD Hemp Lotion, and it quickly became my go-to body moisturizer. (You can read my Healing CBD Hemp Lotion review here.) It’s ultra moisturizing, smells great and contains natural ingredients. The CBD helps my fibromyalgia pain. I thought it couldn’t get better.
I was wrong. There is a new love in my life: The Fay Farm Serenity CBD Lotion.
The Fay Farm took all of the things that I loved about the original CBD lotion and made it even better by adding magnesium oil and calming essential oils. I’ve taken magnesium supplements and used magnesium-based lotions for years. (In fact, they both made my recent list of favorite fibro products!) Magnesium is one of the only things that consistently helps my fibromyalgia pain, and in recent months, I’ve been slathering my feet with magnesium lotion every night to stop the burning and tingling from neuropathy. When I was trying Fay Farm’s original CBD lotion, I mentioned to co-owner Michael Yocco that mixing his CBD lotion with my magnesium lotion really took the fire out of my feet. My friend Julie had the same results. I think our feedback helped inspire the new Serenity lotion.
The magnesium oil in the Serenity lotion gives a little extra umpf to the pain-relieving benefits of the CBD. It’s good stuff, and I’m reaching for it every night as part of my bedtime routine. Michael says people are also using it to quell fussy babies and anxiety over air travel.
Serenity’s fragrance is much softer than the original CBD lotion. I’m not a huge user of aromatherapy products, but I do find the scent of the Serenity lotion soothing and relaxing. The Fay Farm chose a combination of lavender, copaiba (a wood resin), frankincense and bergamot essential oils because of their calming properties.
The lotion is very thick – so thick that it’s probably best to store the smaller 2-ounce bottles upside down to aid in dispensing the product. The larger 8-ounce bottles come with a handy pump dispenser.
The Fay Farm specializes in natural body care products. From their five-acre farm on Whidbey Island, near Seattle, Washington, Stacy, Michael and their daughters raise Nubian goats for milk and grow herbs to use in their handmade, organic hemp-based products.
The Fay Farm’s products contain hemp CBD oil, which is high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and known for reducing inflammation. The 8-ounce bottles contain 200 mg of CBD oil, and the 2-ounce bottles contain 50 mg. All products are free from parabens, alcohol, mineral oil and phthalates. In 2014, The Fay Farm began adding CBD to some of its products to provide improved relief from pain, neuropathy, eczema, psoriasis and other conditions.
A little about CBD products
In recent years, CBD-rich products have received media attention as potential treatments for epilepsy, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, neuropathy and other conditions. While the research is still pretty scant, it’s not uncommon these days to hear fibromyalgia sufferers praise CBD’s benefits.
CBD is one of more than 85 cannabinoids that make up the cannabis plant. Most people are familiar with CBD’s close family member, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the cannabinoid that gives marijuana users a pleasant (at least to some people) high when they smoke it.
Unlike THC, CBD doesn’t have psychoactive qualities (i.e. it won’t make you high) and will not show up on a drug test. CBD-rich products are an alternative for people who are seeking the medicinal benefits of cannabis, but who gave up smoking pot when they graduated college (or never used it in the first place).
The CBD contained within Fay Farm’s products comes from hemp stalks. Hemp body care products are legal in the U.S.
